Picture of Dorian Gray and Other Writings by Oscar Wilde by Oscar Wilde

Book Description

Here in one volume are his immensely popular novel, "The Picture Of Dorian Gray"; his last literary work, the "Ballad Of Reading Goal," a product of his own prison experience; and four complete plays: "Lady Windermere's Fan," his first dramatic success; "An Ideal Husband," which continued to poke fun at conventional morality; "The Importance Of Being Earnest," his finest comedy; and "Salome," a portrait of uncontrollable love originally written in French, now in a new translation by Richard Elman. Every selection appears in its entirely--a marvelous collection of outstanding works by the incomparable Oscar Wilde, whom Max Beerbohm so aptly labeled "a lord of language."

Books By Author Oscar Wilde

Happy Prince & Other Stories by Oscar Wilde Happy Prince & Other Stories, Hardback (March 2017)

The richness of Oscar Wilde's way with words and ideas are given full range in this sparkling collection of short stories written between 1887 and 1891. Illustrated by Aubrey Beardsley, with an Afterword by David Stuart Davies.

Importance of Being Earnest & Other Plays by Oscar Wilde Importance of Being Earnest & Other Plays, Hardback (March 2017)

Around the World in Eighty Days (Le tour du monde en quatre-vingt jours) is a classic. The exciting, if now dated, adventure of Fogg and Passepartout will entertain modern readers as much as it did the Victorians.With an Afterword by John Grant

Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde Picture of Dorian Gray, Hardback (March 2017)

On its first publication The Picture of Dorian Gray was regarded as dangerously modern in its depiction of fin-de-siecle decadence. Although sin is punished in the end the book has a flavour of the elegantly perverse.With an Afterword by Peter Harness."

Author Biography - Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde was born into a socially prominent Anglo-Irish family in Dublin in 1854. A gifted student, he entered Oxford in 1874, where he fell under the aesthetic influence of Walter Pater and John Ruskin. He was soon well known as a dandy, wit, and man-about-town, but married in 1884. THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY was published in 1891, as was his essay, "The Soul of Man Under Socialism," but he found critical and popular sucess in the theater with his comedies: "Lady Windermere's Fan" (1892), "A Woman of No Importance" (1892) "An Ideal Husband" (1895), and "The Importance of Being Earnest "(1895). In 1895, the Marquess of Queensberry sought to end the close relationship between his son, Lord Alfred Douglas, and Wilde, publicly referring to Wilde as a homosexual. After losing a lawsuit against the Marquess for libel, Wilde was arrested and served two years of hard labor at Reading and Pentonville prisons. Wilde was deserted by his wife and friends and upon his release in 1897, he moved to France under an assumed name, where he finished writing "The Ballad of Reading Gaol," and traveled to Italy with Lord Alfred Douglas. Wilde died suddenly in Paris in November of 1900.
